Italy, Switzerland, Algeria and Bosnia all come away victorious
A month after scoring his first goal in an Azzurri shirt, Alessio Romagnoli found his second. He managed to get on the scoresheet against Liechtenstein back on 15 October in Vaduz, and he popped up once again last night with Italy’s sixth goal of the night. The full-time result ended 9-1 against Armenia, ensuring that Italy rounded off their perfect run in qualification with ten wins out of ten. Gigio Donnarumma meanwhile found himself rested on the bench as Mancini opted for Sirigu and Meret in between the sticks for the final match. Elsewhere, Ricardo Rodríguez was in action for Switzerland in their resounding 6-1 win over Gibraltar, our left-back on the pitch for the full 90 minutes. The Swiss end the qualifying round at the top of their group on 18 points.
A much changed Bosnia concluded qualifying with a 3-0 win over Liechtenstein, with Coach Robert Prosinečki starting Rade Krunić on the bench after his 90 minutes in the defeat against Italy. More success meanwhile for Ismaël Bennacer, as always at the heart of his Algeria midfield. It was a narrow but fundamental win over Botswana on matchday two of qualifying for AFCON 2021, Belaili’s goal in the 15th minute proving decisive.
